Kimball Garrett Presents: �A Century of Avifaunal Change in Los
Superimposing some of the most intensive and expansive urbanization
on the planet in an area of great bird diversity has resulted in
dramatic changes over the last century in bird populations in the Los
Angeles Region. Some species have disappeared, others have thrived,
and still others have moved in from elsewhere (with or without direct
help from humans). This talk will look at some of these changes, and
explore the ways we learn about shifting bird populations, from
museum collections to massive databases such as eBird.
Kimball Garrett is the Ornithology Collections Manager at the Natural
History Museum of Los Angeles County and a long time member and field
trip leader for Los Angeles Audubon. He�s been birding in the Los
Angeles region for almost half of the last century of change.
